Lake City Rental Car Accident Attorney
When you need a vehicle to get around, rental cars come in very handy. If, on the other hand, you’ve been injured in a rental car accident that was caused by another driver’s negligence, it suddenly makes the situation much more complicated. If you’ve been injured, don’t put off consulting with an experienced rental car accident lawyer in Lake City today.
Dealing with Insurance Claims
If you’ve been injured in an accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence, and that involves a rental car, the issue of insurance can get very complicated very quickly. If you were driving the rental car, for example, the at-fault motorist’s personal insurance will likely come into play. If you also purchased additional premium coverage with the rental, this coverage will likely take care of any damage that isn’t covered by the at-fault driver’s policy (if he or she is uninsured or underinsured, for example).
If the at-fault driver was driving the rental car, however, any of the following may apply:
- The at-fault driver may have purchased additional premium insurance with the rental that covers your full range of damages (or lesser additional insurance that covers certain aspects of the accident).
- The credit card the at-fault driver used at rental will likely cover some of the damage incurred.
- The at-fault driver’s personal insurance will be responsible for anything that hasn’t already been covered (just as it would if the accident hadn’t involved a rental car).
Car accident claims are complicated, and rental car accident claims are even more so.
